Lead guide Chad Cochran called in yesterday. The forecast wasn't great in the morning, but good weather prevailed and the whole team made into the range and is on schedule. The enjoyed a good meal of veggie burgers and fresh salad. The plan is to review some glacier skills with the team then rig up the sleds and make their way up to Camp 1 (7800ft).

Here is a photo of the group all bundled up before flying. Wish them well!
